Sanoli's Kitchen: OMELETTE CURRY

Monday, July 2, 2012


This a very easy and day to day recipe from eastern India, you may call it as a popular Bengali dish. It is an exotic dish made by omelette cut into pieces. But here I kept omelette as a whole and put it in a flavorful tangy spicy tomato- mustard gravy. It is usually a simple recipe, when you have friends or guests visiting you unannounced. Goes well with roti or rice both, an exceptionally comfort side dish.

4 Eggs
2 tbsps finely chopped onions
1/2 tsp miced Ginger
2 green chillies (finely chopped)
4 tsp Oil
Salt to taste

1 Medium Onion (finely chopped)
1 medium Tomato (finely chopped)
1 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Garlic paste
1 Bay Leaf
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/3 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Curry masala (any)
1/2 tsp Mustard paste
1/3 tsp Garam masala (preferably home made)
1 tbsp finely chopped Coriander Leaves
2 tbsps oil
1 tsp Clarified Butter (Ghee)
Salt to taste

For making omelette, equally divide the ingredients into 4 parts (except eggs & oil). Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan. Beat 1 egg with one portion of ingredient in a bowl. Pour it in frying pan. Let it set for 1-2 minutes. Fold omelette. Remove from heat and set aside on a plate. Follow this same rules for making other 3 omelettes also.
For making gravy, heat 2 tbsps oil in the same pan. Add cumin seeds and bay leaf. Saute for 30 seconds. Add chopped onions in it and fry till light pink. Add garlic and ginger paste in it. Fry for another 2 minutes. Now add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and kitchen king masala. Saute for another 2 minutes.

Add chopped tomato and salt in it. Fry till tomato becomes soft and leaves oil from the edge of pan.This time add 1 cup warm water and mustard paste in it. Let it come to boil.

After 3-4 minutes, add fried omelette in it. Cook it for 2-3 minutes on medium low heat. Sprinkle with garam masala, chopped coriander leaves and clarified butter. Remove from heat and set aside.
Serve hot with streamed rice / roti.
